Description

This book examines both the history and intent of youth policy in Australia. It investigates government intervention with youth from colonialization through to the post-Federation era, challenging claims that youth policy in Australia is of relatively recent origin. The book utilizes an historical policy analysis to argue that governments in Australia typically seek to manage young people on behalf of the state.
